New specialist qualification launched: Certificate in Cyber Security

Sep 20, 2017

On 20 September 2017, despite traffic chaos and the early start we were delighted to welcome attendees to hear more about our upcoming Certificate in Cyber Security which is due to start in October 2017.

This programme was developed in response to interest in this area from our members and the wider business world. We worked closely with KPMG to devise a curriculum and syllabus that will be relevant and interesting to all, no matter the aspects of interaction with data they may have.

The programme can be taken by classroom or distance learning and will be taught by leading practitioners with technical and legal expertise. Speaking at the session and delivering the programme in October were Tony Hughes: (Associate Director, Risk Consulting, KPMG), John Harkness (Manager, Forensic Technology, KPMG) and Gordon Wade (Manager, Legal Services, KPMG). Each spoke of the content they will address in their respective areas across this four-module programme. You can see pictures from the presentation here.

Cyber security is an ever-changing area that impacts on all of our daily working lives. Either by accident or malice, employees, technologies and systems can open our organisations up to a breach. This programme will give you the knowhow, overview and vocabulary to make you and your team more aware of risks and protections.

Sole practitioners, small firms, multinationals, government departments…data and cyber security are paramount for maintaining legal compliance, revenue, reputation and confidence for staff and clients alike in organisations of all sizes.

The  Certificate in Cyber Security will start in October 2017 and you can enrol now. More information about the programme is available here and you can contact us anytime for more information.
